Sounds normal to me. The G1G1 activities for 10.1.3 do _not_ include
Help, so this is expected -- no new version of Help is mentioned, the
updater won't try to update. Relevant URL:

Veering offtopic -- there was discussion (and perhaps even a partial
implementation) of the Activity Updater looking inside the activity
metadata for a URL provided by the activity. Not sure how much of that
is implemented in 0.84 -- likely nothing. Newer versions of Sugar have
seen a major reimplementation of the updater, which I am not familiar
